Memorial Day Weekend

We had a great Memorial Day weekend.  It started on Friday night with a friends birthday BBQ at a very fun park.  Fred and another husband took the kids that could walk on a hike and were gone for about half an hour.  Blaiden had a blast, then ate some food and cake, and then went to the playground.  We all had a great time but we were the first to leave because it was late and the kids had had enough.

On Saturday we went up to Cleveland to watch the Rockies play the Indians.  We took our time going up to the game, it didn't start until 6 and so we knew that it was going to be a hard night but Blaiden was so excited to be there and he and Adilene both had late naps so we were hopeful that it would be a good night.  We got there some time in the 2nd inning, we got our picture taken a few times and it was $1 hotdog night so we stopped and got a few.  Then we headed to the Kid Zone, we didn't know what this was but a worker told us it was fun.  When we got up there it was pretty packed with kids.  There was an indoor area where the younger kids could play.  Fred and Blaiden hung out there while I went to go feed Adilene. 

Then we made our way out to the outdoor games.  We met up with a friend, his daughter, and mom and let the kids play some more.  Blaiden loved the races but didn't quite understand that it was a race.  He would follow the other kids and would always have to say 1, 2, 3, GO! before he would start running back.  Finally around the bottom of the 5th we made it to our chairs.  By this time Adilene was ready to go to bed as it was around 9 and a good 2 hours past bedtime.  I held her while Fred tried to control Blaiden.  He ate some snacks, cheered at everything, and tried to talk to everyone around us.

In the 7th and 8th innings they shot off a few fireworks.  Blaiden got so excited all he would say after that is BOOM! and raise his hands in the air.  When the game was over we watched a fireworks show and he loved it!  Adilene woke up just in time too and so while I covered her ears she watched as they lit up the sky.

Our family had such an amazing time, Blaiden had so much fun and it is amazing experiencing these outings with him and Adilene is such an awesome baby she is so relaxed and will do anything.  I can't wait to do this again.  However the amount of planning and the amount of bags it took for this trip was a little crazy.
